How to Have Good Days When Things Go Wrong
Mar 31, 2014
When I counsel people, I always ask how their day starts. Do you wake up tired? Are you moody in the morning? Are you sensitive or irritable? These questions help me to determine what is going on healthwise. These symptoms are all related to hypoglycemia or low blood sugar. If you are relating to these conditions upon waking, then consider nourishing your adrenal glands. Your adrenal glands regulate the sugar in your bloodstream and when it is too high, it talks to the pancreas to secrete insulin to bring it down. When it is too low, the adrenals talk to the liver to realize glycogen for the cells. If on the other hand, you are fortunate enough not to have to deal with low blood sugar, then here are things you can do to have good days:
- Try to wake up earlier than you are currently accustomed to so that you have time to meditate. To start, you can sit in a comfortable position in a chair or even on the floor, close your eyes, relax your body, and be as still as you can. Breathe slowly and deeply, and with each inhale, give thanks for the things that you are grateful for. I would keep it to around five. Every day you can change them out and, of course, some you should repeat. With every exhale, tell yourself you are releasing tension and any anger that you may have against anyone. Seek to accept people for where they are and not who you think they should be. Ask your mind, which knows everything you are going to go through in the upcoming day, for guidance by thinking about your day ahead. Ask the Universe for guidance, protection and strength. Start your day off in a positive way, so the rest of the day will be filled with good energy.
- Remember Ram Dass? He said, “Be here now.” Great advice. True it is hard to do. However, with practice you can. What this means from a different point of view is not to worry about what’s ahead or what’s behind. There’s not much you can do about the past. The future is unfolding. If you have a positive outlook and manifest that energy, then guess what, your day will be great. Here’s a great tip from the master sage, Buddha. He said, “The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.”
- Another mindset is to do your best. When you make the effort to do so, you will avoid self-judgement and regret. When you take the right action in regards to any situation, you will always be coming from a position of strength.
- Last but not least is “dealing” with things. You will either respond with personal power or not. When you respond with power, it shows you are thinking things through and choosing how you will deal with the situation.
Remember two things: You can find a way to make lemonade from lemons, and God would never place you in a situation that you could not master. How developed is your personal power? Do you have the quiet strength to manifest what you want on a daily basis?
